In Response to Re: Who won
[QUOTE]Ms. Fallon won hands down. Mr. Christenson looked very nervous while Ms Fallon looked confident, calm, cool, and collected. Mr. Christenson attempted many times to attack Ms. Fallon but she, like an adult, took the high road. Mr. Christenson came off like a crybaby. In my opinion it was great to see Ms. Fallon come out from behind her podium and seemingly speak to the people. Mr. Christenson looked like he was cowardly hiding behind his podium. It was funny to see that Mr. Christenson didn't seem to be stopped by the moderator even though he seemed to clearly go past the time limit. Also, at least two different times the moderator "neglected" to give Ms. Fallon the sign that her time was almost up and then cut her right off. Funny how things like that work around Malden. When the candidates were given their time at the end of the debate to speak Mr. Christenson remained hiding behind his podium and was clearly reading his little speech from papers he had on his safeguard wall podium, while Ms. Fallon again came out from behind the podium, took center stage, and without having to read her speech from her notes, like Mr. Christenson did, she spoke fluently, didn't stumble, got her message across, and made her point. Deb Fallon was the clear winner here. I can't trust the guy that remains behind his podium like he has something to hide, does a horrible job reading from notes when given a chance to speak, and attempts to belittle and his opponent (in true Malden Good ol Boy fashion) like the brave Mr. Christenson did last night. I don't even want to suggest that Mr Christenson could have known some of the questions that were going to be asked by the Mayor Howard run media outlets that provided the folks asking the questions. This debate somewhat reminded me of the 1960 Kennedy/Nixon presidential debate. Christenson as Nixon and Fallon as Kennedy. Malden's Camelot!! VOTE FALLON!!!!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LaqgQcvLO_o&feature=related

HAHAHAHAHA!!! This was actually funnier than I expected! I did expect some comments, because being her supporter you will have to come up with some spin, but this is hysterical.
Thank you for that. Make sure to look at the strange faces Fallon was making as she was trying to come up with something to say other than "portal to hope....blah blah....Portal to Hope.....15 years experience (I believe it was said 8 times at least). Trick of the trade- when you don't have substance keep repeating anything you know! Not very Mayoral, not at all.
Everyone questions those years of experience anyway. Mr. Christenson looked MAYORAL behind the podium. This wasn't a town hall meeting. Christenson was on the money with the questions- this is what matters. Closing statements are just fluff and Fallon definitely wins on fluff. I won't dispute that she is a trained Politician and can spin with the best of them, Gary is the real deal and we need real answers, not fluff and political savvy.
NO MORE political family history. It's time for CHANGE- Gary Christenson is that change!
Thanks again for the chuckle.
